A nice job for high school or college kids.
Customer Service Clerk (Former Employee) – Virginia – December 16, 2016
Worked at Food City a few years back as a bagger, part-time. Most day-to-day duties involved bagging groceries for customers, helping them locate items, cleaning and low-level maintenance, stocking, and so on. It was a pretty decent place to work, and I think a good choice for teens still in high school or planning on going to college. It's a chance to work and communicate with a diverse group of individuals, whether they're employees, management, or customers, and a good chance to gain some life skills when it comes to dealing with the public. Managers were generally friendly and tried to be flexible with work schedules. Employees were also very friendly with each other.
There wasn't really a lot of opportunity for increased pay or job advancement of any kind. Job security typically wasn't that great either, but from experience it had more to do with the temperament of the employees than anything else. It you were friendly and worked hard, you could keep the job for a long time.
All in all, not a bad job for people getting their foot in the workforce.
Friendly environment, flexible scheduling
Few chances for advancement
